Crème De La Crème: Make Room For the Most Decadent Desserts in the World

Remember, always leave room for dessert. The sweet course eaten at the end of a meal is the cherry on top of a fantastic feast. While there’s plenty to enjoy, from a humble scoop of ice cream, the finest after-dinner treats are a delicacy in their own right, ranging from thousand-dollar cupcakes to million-dollar strawberries.

When it comes to the cream of the crop, these expensive desserts will certainly make you want to tuck into the feel-good food first. Take a look at these unmissable after-dinner indulgences.

Lindeth Howe Hotel Chocolate Pudding

Created by Chef Marc Guibert at Lindeth Howe Hotel in Windermere, United Kingdom, the A$38,900 confectionary is made of exclusive ingredients like caviar and four different types of the finest Belgian chocolate. The Chocolate Pudding requires a three week pre-order and is styled like a Faberge Easter egg layered with champagne jelly and a light biscuit joconde and is glazed with edible gold leaf and adorned with a two-carat diamond.

Diamond Fruitcake

Created for the Takashimaya Department Store in Tokyo, this extravagant two-layer hexagonal fruit cake is adorned with 223 diamonds weighing around 170 carats. The ‘Diamond Fruitcake’ costs almost A$2.5 million and was made for promotional display only taking six months to design and an entire month to create. Although the expensive cake is edible, as you’d expect, the diamonds must be removed before consumption.
